I received the first shot 3 weeks ago. Arm was sore for 4 days and had a slight fever the first night.

I'm to call after the first of the year to schedule the second shot.

Last week my Wife got shingles. I never had chicken pox and she can now give it to me.

Finally received my second shot last Thursday. My shoulder was a little sore for a few days, but not like it was after the first one and I had a sort of uncomfortable night, however by the time I got out of bed I was better. Considering what the alternative could have been without the vaccine I think the outcome was acceptable. I’ve known people who have suffered through an episode of shingles and I will happily take a pass.

I'm getting the second shot today. I was a bit sore and tired after the first one. Well worth it if it prevents getting Shingles.

I got my second one a while back. About 12 hours after I got it I was in bed shivering and nauseous. No fever. Next day just aches, mild nausea and fatigue for the day. #rd day still achy but better.

Got the second shot today. The arm is still sore from the time of the previous shot, in October, though I can't say with any conclusiveness it's the shot. More sore, now, and my temp is up and down. I'm isolating in a spare bedroom and wearing a mask around the house if I need to leave the room for a bathroom break; common sense precaution. Probably just the shingrix shot.

Got my Rx in hand for my second shot. First was 30 October.

No issues other than I got caught unaware that TriCare For Life would charge me a $150 co-pay if received at a doctor's office but free at any neighborhood pharmacy. Frown

Planning on getting #2 on the 28th of this month.

As stated in my other thread, I had a reaction to the vaccine.

The worst of the pain has subsided, but the gabapentin was worse than the pain. Imagine a television that was broadcasting a really unpleasant shitty show, then it just gets switched to static. My ears are ringing so loud, I am deafened.

If that wasn't enough, the after effects of my Bells Palsy has returned. The nerve that was affected is now twinging and causing me to lose balance.

I don't even dare to call my doctor over this anymore because they stick me with a $300 bill every time.

So my doctor fucks me up and I get to pay for it.

Odd story going back a few years. When my son got his 2nd booster for Chicken Pox I was 35. Two days later I came down with a very mild case of the shingles on my back and legs. The doctor was perplexed and said it was a coincidence. Really?

Yes, really. It's not possible for your son getting a shot to cause you to develop shingles.

Just got my Shingrix #1 yesterday at my local Walgreens. After effects are minor. Sore and red in about a four-inch circle around the injection area. I'm blessed!

When I contacted y doctor's office about getting vaccinated there, they laid the onus on me to check with my insurance (BCBS) and wanted me to agree to cover their fee $462.00 EACH should my insurance not cover. I contacted Walgreens. $188 per shot; Walgreens also made the effort to run the cost through my insurance and advised I would not be getting a bill. Not even a co-pay. Of course I went with Walgreens. The pharmacist even delayed his lunch break to give me the shot. Great service by the pharmacist and his staff at Walgreens, and I made sure to tell him I appreciated him and his staff's service.


Best regards,
Nick.

I experienced no side effects after shot #!.

I was sick after #2 with flu like symptoms that cleared up after a couple of days. Small price to pay... glad I did it.

In case it hasn't been covered:

Both Shingrix doses (with administration separated by 2 to 6 months) are exactly the same product. It is not possible to accidentally give or get them out of order.
